about the teacher
Robin is the the daughter of two professional classical musicians. As a small child, a favorite hiding place was the inside of the Church pipe organ. Normal life meant having tea parties with her sister underneath the legs of a grand piano, while one or the other parent practiced on it for concerts, and many child-driven concerts were given to stuffed animal audiences with real or invented musical instruments. Robin's home church in St. Louis was founded and greatly influenced by Francis Schaeffer, so she grew up immersed in and greatly valuing the arts and creativity as an essential part of her faith.
